MFSM Day 2011
A huge event hosted by the Mountaineering Federation of Southern Mindanao (MFSM) was actively participated by the Local Government of Sta. Cruz Adventure Club. It took place on December 10-11, 2011 at a newly-opened Sunset Beach Park in Island Garden City of Samal.
With a very timely theme of “MOTHER EARTH, MFSM AND ME,” it fulfilled another goal of making Southern Mindanao mountaineers part of the challenge in climate change co-existence and mitigation. It also allowed the new club members of MFSM to define the reasons of their membership to the federation aside from the sense of belongingness and camaraderie which is to “heal Mother Nature.”
The event was graced by no less than the Director of Department of Tourism XI Mr. Arturo P. Boncato, Jr. who himself believes that members of MFSM have greater roles in promoting Davao Region as an eco-tourism destination in the country with the presence of Mt. Apo as its banner site.
There were 22 LOGSAC contingents who joined the anniversary and everybody was overwhelmed with all the surprises prepared by the organizers.
• Welcome first-timers Anjo, Nice, Gene, Mariel, etc….
• Thanks also to the Alcoriza brothers for the car ride when this blogger lost his consciousness due to intoxication (hehehe).
• Congrats to Mr. Julius Paner who was one of the three awardees of the Most Outstanding Club Presidents of MFSM.
